I feast on your desires like scraps from a wretched beggar’s table. In this I
am a myriad of choices to acquiesce and follow and
become the thing I once most despised; this insipid, crawling
death of sensibility and morality, and in
the depths of this depravity my pointless acts are yet the
destroyer of all sensibility, of honour and
of duty. But yet for one brief moment in your gaze I bequeath all my
worlds at your feet, a humble slave to your un-ending greed.

  1. Oh wow Helen this one packs a punch! The formatting and the choice of bold print very effective and dramatic!

  2. Great response to the prompt Helen. The idea of an ‘unending greed’ is very powerful and i thought very effective.
